    The aim of this study is to state the components which determine the poverty of households in Turkey according to incomes and consumption expenditures between the years 2002 and 2006. The data was taken from the Household Budget Surveys of Turkey Statistical Institute for the years 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006. Results demonstrate that poverty risk decreases when the head of the household’s age and education level increases, results also demonstrate that rural household’s poverty is much bigger and finally in 2002 poverty rates were at maximum while in 2006 poverty rates were at minimum.
